Critical infrastructure powers businesses and nations but is no longer defined solely as discrete, physical assets. Now the cyber systems that power infrastructure are also vulnerable as this cyber-physical convergence has elevated the security risks.
Critical infrastructure is largely owned by private companies, but its protection demands a shared responsibility between the public and private sectors to minimize the risks.
Infrastructure failures from acts of terror, extreme weather events, other natural disasters, and sophisticated cyber intrusions can disrupt delivery of essential services, damage property, and trigger other cascading events.
